I am using the dynamixel_controllers package to control a single dynamixel RX28, very much the same way as it is done in the tutorials. My question is: How do I stop the manager correctly? Do I have to stop all loaded controllers before? Whenever I Ctrl-C the launch file with the manager, the dynamixel will not be released (torque still active) and the USB port holding the dynamixel will be disconnected. (dmesg says: ttyUSB0: error from flowcontrol urb). This makes it impossible to restart the manager.

Any hint is appreciated.
